This is a unique community set on the shores of Lake Malawi. We are involved in numerous community projects ourselves; nursery schools, youth club, internet and media centre, womens groups, special needs group, permaculture gardens at surrounding schools, radio group, amongst others and we try and encourage other people to come and volunteer in the community here. Some of these projects are on site and some are in the surrounding area, but Nkhata Bay is a bustly port town, though further away from town is remote and village like. Myself and Alice live on site as well and it has a unique vibe.

We are offering people who can offer something to the lodge itself a chance to come and stay on site and help us with our projects. Things like building, carpentry, gardening, or landscaping, as well as potentially tourism, community development or project management skills are all things that we could find useful. as we are busy plenty of the time we would expect people to be able to use their initiative. In return for a decent days work, in a stunning location and environment we would provide accommodation and one evening meal to the right person. people wishing to volunteer more directly in the community projects should contact us seperately to receive more information about this.
